The AAP could be a good alternative but too early to say anything. They need to first prove their credentials with their performance in Delhi. People have pinned too much hopes on them and are expecting too much too soon. There has been an overwhelming response from new aspirants to the party. The AAP needs to be very careful in screening and selecting of their candidates. Members like Kumar Vishwas would do well to speak less and work more. I d like the party to have a successful tenure in the capital.


Too early for AAP to be a serious alternative , they need good 10 years of governance and existence to make such claim . Otherwise they will meet the fate of VP Singh. But they can play the role of spoilsports for some regional parties like SP, BSP etc. If they get 30 odd seats, they will factor a lot. 

I see Modi as the front-runner by far, its just the number which he is running after. Congress made it so easy for him and fielding Rahul will be a self goal.

And for those who are heckling about AAP's national policies - I say , they are trolling. This party is too new and too inexperienced to actually come out with a solid plan. They are at a stage where they are advertising and canvasing for good party members. Hence the odd irrelevant statements. As far as economics is concerned I won't chart them soon , they have a govt in Delhi whose main revenue is only tax and the state powers are too curtailed. With all these big industrialists and management people leaving their career and joining AAP's thinktank, their economic policies will go for an evolution. 

For Delhi I say - give the man few months before we chart out surveys , stings to measure his capability. Too soon for anything.

@Bold  - Agree they do need to stop these ex-members of other parties joining them. I like Yogendra Yadav and Athiti speaking , both are so eloquent and well-spoken. That Kumar guy annoys me, he needs to stop attending these tv debates.

all rubbish that aap is taking the nation.

you have to be a real fool to support these bloody socialists! this survey is crap as well. even indira gandhi couldnt get 45% vote share, where is 70% of the nation supporting them?

already aap's popularity has been reduced by half after joining hands with the congress. congress leaders are infact saying they can tie up with aap for general elections.

they wont get more than 3 seats, and will help bjp win.

aap steals congress votes rather than the bjp's bjp's vote share went down by 3, and congress by 15% and as per LS consituencies bjp would have won 5 out of 7 seats on assembly issues. but for ls bjp would have won all 7 elhi seats in general elections.

aap might grow and become a national party by 2013. but now that aap will help divide socialist pseudo secular votes of the congress, bjp is winning 230 seats this year.



True. Muslim votes, especially would get divided.. Jat votes would go to BJP fully, Dalits divided between BSP, Cong and now maybe even AAP. Overall gainer=BJP. Funnily, Cong thinks jumping on the AAP bandwagon will clear their image a bit and act as a buffer against BJP, when its backfiring on them in reality. LOL

On AAP, I support them as of now, but their welfare schemes look like they would fizzle out in the long run. As I'd said before as well, they should cut down on the anti-corruption unilateral agenda and not engage in foolish populism anywhere. The free water scheme (20ML per month) is a diaster for large slum families who'd have to pay for all the water.


Genie: Hey, I like Kumar Vishwas. The guy can talk like a whiplash. LOL

Very true.  The AAP should take their time instead of giving in to the mounting public pressure. I don't see the AAP win a majority in the coming elections but then it did not stop them from forming the govt in Delhi. I got the feeling that it was almost thrust on them. They would have been more comfortable in the opposition. all the same its good to see them rise to the challenge. The BJP has cause to worry. The number game is set to be upset.

Yes, they need to be careful about their populist moves, though its understandable under present circumstances. They were under a scanner for their pre election promises and with the little time they had before proving their strength in the floor of the house it was a necessity

Would he really take up his dare of contesting from Amethi! LOL

I see AAP getting polarized post elections. They have CEOs joining them as well as social activist like Megha. Where and how will they find the political equilibrium , that is to be seen.
Oh damn, that Vishwas guy seems so weird and wired. Just for the laughs I would love to see him take on Rahul. But whats with Amethi, is it a town, village or a city? How has that place developed over the years as it has forever been the playground of Gandhi family. Any power perks?

^^That is what happens most commonly to organisations which are "Platforms" without any marked ideology. LOL

I see it more as a party of Journos , everyday some senior editor is resigning.  I just fail to see why Megha wants to join. 
AAP I guess is letting them in and riding the tide till LS, expect all the filtration after the election. But its some crazy party going!

The motto in practise is, "Common man is as common man does". Aam Admi is letting in every aadmi who claims to be "aam". Its a dharamshala of sorts right now. But you're correct, they'll probably get down to hard business once the LSEs are done with.
